Scraping Data from the Web

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Rather than having to argue with bureaucrats about whether you have a right to data, you can  "scrape" the data from government Web sites by using tools and programming to download the data into a database on your computer. This session will show you some of the easiest ways to do that. Nils Mulvad and Sanjit Oberai will do hands-on training of the use of import.io.

Those taking our hands-on data training should bring their own laptops and, if possible, have Microsoft Excel (the spreadsheet software) loaded on their computers. And please sign up for a free account on import.io and download the Desktop App (https://www.import.io/download/download-info/)
